Ana and Colin’s talk is titled, “Are We Losing our Human Identity to Technology?”:
“What it’s like to be you, is a fundamental part of our consciousness, identity, and being alive. Everything that we experience, every thought and feeling has the potential to limit what we do next. Our past informs both the present and our expectations of the future, and most of the time we won’t even realize that it’s happening. With the pervasiveness of Algorithms and AI, our lives and identities are already being shaped as never before. With billions of dollars being invested in the race for general intelligence AI exceeding that of humans, what chance do we have of being unique individuals, to be ourselves?”
